Roth, you might look at the Rem 700 VTR. They make a .223 in that and all the reviews I read from people who have them are great ones. Talking like 1/3 MOA out of the box.

I got the .308...but I haven't shot it yet. Yeah yeah, I've had it for almost three weeks now and yes, I should have shot it...but I'm just so damn busy!

That should have a 1:14 twist.

I'm not familiar with that particular gun, but I found this on Berger Bullets website. Hope it helps.

It looks like whatever you go with, you don't want to go much bigger than a 155gr according to your rate of twist.

CZ makes some great guns.It should be a shooter with lighter bullets if it has a 1-14 twist,but it probably won't like the heavier ones.

1:12 in the 308, 1:14 in the 22-250


I should be happy with 168gr SMK over 42.5 of Reloder 15
